Since I have not posted since ACL Fest, I figured I would do a info dump here.
I had bitched about my XM Radio missing channels back in May. It took me awhile, but I got a fix. On the xmradio.com site, you can actually send a reset command down to your radio. As long as it is powered on it will refresh the channel listing. It actually worked. I clicked the button and within twenty minutes or so, I had all of the channels I am supposed to have. Nice.
I was having lunch with Mookie the other day and he mentioned the Blogger Poker Challenge *might* be making a comeback this fall. I guess I will need to restock my supply of disposable cash on FullTilt. It will have to be sort of Personal Token Frenzy because I will have a hard time paying the $26 or $75 entry fees for several months.
This is probably my next toy: Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Small and lightweight, I wouldn’t mind traveling with that over my regular laptop. My laptop will still get service, just not as much. The cheap one is still a grand though, so it will be while before I bite the bullet.
I ordered a VA Tech hat from hokieshop.com on August 20th. One would think that would be enough time to get it to me before the *third* game of the season at least. Nope. It shipped today, so if UPS delivers I will have it before the *fourth* game. Oh well.
That is enough for today. Have fun everyone!
